Posted by Peter Brennan on Tuesday,August 1, 2017 8:45, EST in

By the time Tuesday arrives in the MLB, several teams in the league are going to be looking a little different for their respective MLB betting picks, as the trade deadline will come and go on Monday night. The New York Yankees have already been active, and will welcome in the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. The Kansas City Royals look very good as they are right now, and will continue their charge on the top of the Central Division with a series on the road in Baltimore. The Washington Nationals have opened up what appears to be an unassailable lead in the NL East, and they will look to extend that lead with a series on the road against the Miami Marlins. Find the latest baseball betting picks here.

A Closer Look At The 2017 MLB Betting Picks and Favorites for Tuesday, August 1

 

 

Detroit Tigers (47-56) at New York Yankees (56-47)

When: Tuesday, August 1 at 7:05 PM EST
Where: Yankee Stadium, NYC
TV: MLBN
Probable Pitchers: Anibal Sanchez Vs CC Sabathia

Analysis: The Detroit Tigers have had a rough season, but they proved over the weekend that they are not a team to be taken lightly, as they unexpectedly took 2 of 3 from the high-flying Houston Astros. The Tigers have now covered in each of their last 3 games, and have also seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 8. The OVER looks particularly tempting against a Yankees team that knows how to score. Anibal Sanchez (2-1, 6.18 ERA) will start.

The Yankees are back in business after a solid start to the second half that has helped put them back on top in the AL East. The Yankees have won 5 of their last 6 games, and are excellent in their own ball park, going 31-18 at home this season. While the OVER does indeed look tempting in this one, it is worth noting that the OVER has only hit 4 times in the last 16 Yankees games. CC Sabathia (9-6, 3.66 ERA) will start for the Yankees.

  • Detroit is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last 5 games

Kansas City Royals (55-48) at Baltimore Orioles (50-54)

When: Tuesday, August 1 at 7:05 PM EST
Where: Camden Yards, Baltimore
TV: MLBN
Probable Pitchers: Ian Kennedy Vs Dylan Bundy

Analysis: There are few teams in the MLB betting picks hotter than the Kansas City Royals right now. Hence, the Royals are an impressive 9-1 in their last 10 games, and are now just 2 games back of the Cleveland Indians for the division lead. Moreover, the Royals have clawed their way back to .500 on the road, and will feel as though they have a shot at going over that mark with a series win here. The Royals have only lost 2 of the last 10 starts made by Ian Kennedy (4-6, 4.43 ERA), who will be on the mound for this one.

The Orioles may not be where they would like to be at this stage of the season, but this is a team that always seems to be a tough out. Baltimore has covered in 10 of their last 13 games, winning 8 games during that run. They come into this week on a modest 2-game win streak, and have the added bonus of having a solid 30-21 record at Camden Yards. Dylan Bundy (9-8, 4.53 ERA) will start for the Orioles.

2017 MLB Betting Picks and Winning Favorites for Tuesday, August 1

Washington Nationals (62-41) at Miami Marlins (49-54)

When: Tuesday, August 1 at 7:10 PM EST
Where: Tropicana Field, Miami
TV: MLBN
Probable Pitchers: Max Scherzer Vs Chris O’Grady

Analysis: The Washington Nationals currently hold a 13-game lead over the Marlins at the top of the NL East, and it would take some sort of epic collapse for them to lose that. Yes, the Nationals are just 5-5 in their last 10 games, but overall in the second half, they are 10-5, which is more than enough to keep the pack at bay. Max Scherzer (12-5, 2.23 ERA) is having a spectacular year, and he will be on the mound for this one.

The Marlins may have no shot at running down the Nationals, but they have played them tough this season, going 3-3 in their previous 6 meetings. The Marlins are showing some real signs of life, winning 5 of their last 7 games. They have also been scoring some runs, and have seen the OVER hit in 5 of their last 6 outings. The Marlins will send Chris O’Grady (2-1, 3.68 ERA) to the mound for this one.
